JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time? Cori: You were able to go to church every Wednesday
and Sunday. The gym was no longer available for
the women. You used to be able to go outside to
enjoy the weather but I believe they had
actually stopped that back in 2005. Grady: none. zero.
JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details. Cori: No. The only entertainment we had was going to
church and there was never any competition for
that. Grady: A tv was our babysitter. Nothing else to do. No
rec.No newspapers. No magazines. I'm sorry, chess
and cards too were available.
JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail? Cori: Yes and no. The only thing you could really do
while in there was walk around the jail cell in
laps and put cards down on the table to know how
many times you had walked around the cell. We
couldn't go down the gym to work out. Grady: I lost 20 lbs.
JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise? Cori: I only got to go outside twice and that was in
2005. That was when we was allowed to smoke
then. Grady: Never went outside. You could look like a fag and
do jumping jacks I guess.
JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held? Cori: Yes the jail did offer church services. They
were held on Wednesdays and Sundays. They were
very nice. We got to get saved, ask for prayers,
listen to the preacher read from the bible, do
bible activities and turn in by a certain date.
Also we got to different people from various
churchs and places from different areas for help
for sexual abuse past or for drug addications,
etc. Grady: Yes.I don't know. I never attended. They didn't
have temple, only church. I'm Jewish.
